The look of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Coupe is one of the reasons it continues to be so popular today. As of 2012 it sits a bit lower and features a blacked out roof panel and wide mouth grille. LED lights in the rear and headlamps with blue tinted lens add to the attraction. Though considered a rare find on today's cars, the Eclipse is still boasting a large rear hatch. Still, this is a sports coupe that is known just as much for performance as it is for style.
There are four trims in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Coupe including the GS, GS Sport, GT and the SE which was only introduced in 2012. The GS comes standard with a 162 horsepower 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine and 5 speed manual transmission. It also boasts 18 inch aluminum alloy wheels and an AM/FM/CD player with MP3 capabilities. The GS Sport adds heated leather front seats, a four speed automatic transmission standard, HID headlamps, power driver's seat and a power sunroof. The GS Sport also features a Rockford Fosgate audio system that has nine speakers, a 6 disc CD changer and 650 watts of power. The GT boasts the same Rockford Fosgate system and an automatic climate control, but what really sets this trim apart is the engine and transmission. It comes with a 265 horsepower 3.8 liter V6 engine and a 5 speed Sportronic automatic transmission.
The SE trim is new on the Mitsubishi Eclipse Coupe for 2012 and boasts a few features not available on the other trims. It has dark argen 18 inch wheels, black exterior door mirrors and a dark lower side SE graphic. All trims on this sports coupe include brake override logic, front wheel drive and extensive safety features.
